In response to the needs of kinship family caregivers, government, private and community-based organizations in San Diego County are working to expand services and supports for children living with kin inside and outside of the formal foster care system.
The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (GRG) Workgroup is a group of service providers that are dedicated to connecting relative caregivers to resources in their communities. Resource symposiums such as the “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Symposium” connect caregivers and grandparents to workshops, parent education, respite care, support groups, and other vital necessities.
